Chinese historian Dr Jim Ng is the driving force behind the trail, which would link the Chinese garden in Dunedin, the goldfields of Lawrence-Tuapeka and the Cromwell Mining Centre as key drawcards for tourists.

2:20 Pilot project for international students to lodge complaints

A website has been launched today that will allow Canterbury students to lodge complaints of racial harrassment. Students from Christchurch Polytechnic, and Lincoln and Canterbury Universities can log on to the site to file a complaint, and to request if they want it followed up by the Police, the Human Rights Commission or their education provider.

The website's part of the Safer Students campaign that was launched earlier this year, after research showed fifty percent of international polytech and university students in Canterbury had experienced racial harrassment or had seen it happening to others.

Inspector John Price is in charge of policing development for the Canterbury district and talks about the project.
